Craigie AitchisonUnited Kingdom
Art Brokerage: Craigie Aitchison Scottish Artist: b. 1926. Craigie Aitchison was born in Kincardie-on-Forth in 1926, and grew up in Dunbartonshire and on the Island of Arran. The son of a leading Scottish lawyer, Craigie Aitchison followed in his father's footsteps, studying law at Edinburgh University (1944-46) and London's Middle Temple (1948), before abandoning this career to enter the Slade School of Art in London (1952-54), where his fellow students included Euan Uglow, who remained a close friend until his death in 2000. In 1955 Aitchison travelled to Italy after he was awarded the British Council Italian Government Scholarship for painting, and there he was profoundly influenced by the clear Mediterranean light and the natural landscapes that were infused with the Biblical associations of Renaissance painting. The experience of working in Italy affirmed his love of rich, flatly-applied colour which remains his signature. Best known as a painter, Craigie Aitchison has also produced silkscreen prints and hand-coloured etchings throughout his career, employing printmaking techniques which produce the same intensity of colour and form as oils on canvas.
